  2. Mode, median, and mean are all measures of central tendency. Whichever is right is really based on your opinion, I think, as long as you can support your reasoning, but in my opinion the best measure of central tendency to represent the dog breeds would be mean. Mode only lists a few dog weights, if you even have a mode, and median would be only one weight out of the whole list. Mean makes the most sense.
